Default Waterman

Went on a ride out to Saxon mill, waterman and Stratford yesterday was all good until leaving the waterman. Pulled out of the car park down the hill and a nice new police car pulls out behind us and follows us to Stratford. Stopped at stratford for chips and headed home on the a34 where another police car decides to follow us...

Is this a usual thing for people visiting the waterman?

I never see a police car near the Waterman, but Speedplay just looks dodgy.

Never saw them mate, they must have have got a tip off that you were arriving. I heard the next night on Midlands today that police were searching for a Triumph Daytona that had been doing a ghostrider impression through the traffic on the M6.

Well you were in "Dad mode" and not "bike mode" when I saw you last.

You've got a good looking son there...must take after his mum

And as for the Daytona, I'll keep my eyes open

Nope, I'm going to change those chain & sprockets on the XT so we can go greenlaning, and I'm going to sort that turfing, so we can have a BBQ
